The hardest part about this project was figuring out how to hang the shelf on the wall. I have never made anything before and wanted to buy the Pottery Barn version of this but did not want to spend $600 + shipping so with some help from some friends and my husband, Voilà!

I spent about $100 total on this project. We did buy a jigsaw for this but plan to use it for many other things so I'm not counting that. It really doesn't require much skill and wasn't all that difficult. We put ours together with screws and since I was painting it I wasn't worried about the imperfections along the way. All that's left to do is sew a cushion! I am so happy with the results! Thank you so much Ana White for these plans!
